What is Shave Ice?

“Shave Ice” or “Hawaiian Shave Ice” (not Shaved Ice with a “D”) is a fluffy and snow-like, sweet, cool and refreshing Hawaiian treat.  Ice is finely shaved and then syrups are poured and absorbed into the soft snow. Whereas sno-cones are ground up ice cubes that have a coarse and “crunchy” texture.

Hawaiian shave ice is traditionally served in plastic cups with a scoop of ice cream and/or azuki beans on the bottom. A sweetened condensed milk mixture, some times called “snow cap”, can be drizzled over the top.

About Us

Brandt Family on Haleakala

Auntie Viv’s Shave Ice is a woman-owned, family run business where everyone is welcomed and treated like ohana (family)!

Vivian, her husband Bill and their two young keiki’s, daughters Chloe and Ella, visited Maui for the first time in 2017. Vivian fell in love at “first taste” with her very first Hawaiian shave ice. How she describes this phenomenon: “It literally was like a deliciously flavored, puffy cloud that instantly melted in my mouth and tasted like liquid gold.” Vivian says, “It was the best epicurean experience ever.”

Upon returning to the mainland, Vivian had her sights set on opening her own shave ice business. Vivian didn’t want to serve the typical crunchy, icy, sno-cone, with gross high fructose corn syrups and artificially flavored/colored syrups. Auntie Viv’s prides itself in their handcrafted syrups that are made with real, natural, ingredients and 100% pure cane sugar.

The Press

  •   SUMMARY: Met Vivian, the sweetest lady you'll ever meet at a pop up show outside of Cali Craft a few weekends back. We got her Furikake Cracker Mix. So delicious!

    I'm probably spelling it incorrectly but it's a type of fried, seasoned topping for rice. Viv uses it to season Japanese style rice cracker mix. Holy goodness, this stuff was attic five. I tried not to sample it at her stand, but her charming personality convinced me like a Jedi mind trick.

    Sorry no pics of the packaging or the crackers, but trust me it was pretty darn good. Highly recommend you at least sample, but gotta warn you that you'll buy a bag or two!

  •   Yummy, authentic shave ice! According to my son, it tastes "100x better than Hawaii!"

  •   I had Auntie Viv's at my brother's birthday party, and it was absolutely AMAZING!! This is the real deal, legit Hawaiian shaved ice, not snow cone stuff you get at other places. I absolutely loved that the syrups, which are naturally flavored and not "over the top" sugar sweetened syrup. The homemade mochi was delicious!!! I loved that the whole family is involved and they enjoy what they do. Service with a smile, even in 90+degree weather  Mahalo!!

  •   My first time trying this at a birthday party and was NOT disappointed! Reminds me of local shave ice back at home in Hawaii! Ono flavors and mochi, red bean, and ice cream was awesome!!

    thumb Carlene D.
  •   If you ever see Auntie Viv's Shave Ice booth, run, don't walk to get the best shaved ice in town! Seriously! The ice is delicate and melts in your mouth (you won't get any crunchy ice). Her syrups are all made from scratch and so delicious! If there is a long line, it's worth the wait! You won't be disappointed and the proportions are huge!
